Nutritional Values Dried Apricots

The apricots are divided into two groups according to their drying style:
• Sulphured Dried Apricots
• Natural Dried Apricots.

Sulphured Dried Apricots are treated with SO2 in order to provide color retention and longer the shelf life .The color of this type changes from light yellow to orange. The SO2 content is max 2000 ppm for European countries and between 2500-3000 for USA and others. Also if the buyer needs a special content it can be adjusted as well. The color is lighter as the SO2 content increases. Natural (Unsulphured) Dried Apricots differs from sulphured apricots in color, the color of this type changes from light brown to dark brown this is because these apricots are directly dried under the sunlight without being treated with SO2.

Classification according to Quality Specifications:
• 1.Class
• 2.Class
• Industrial

There are two groups, natural and sulphured and four quality classes, extra, first, second and industrial classes. In Turkish Standards, the two important quality criteria of dried apricots are, moisture and SO2 contents, which should not exceed 25 % and 0,20 % (2000ppm) by weight respectively.
